Christian Ericksen To Be Fitted With A Cardiac Starter Following His Collapse At EURO 2020.

Danish Midfielder, Christian Eriksen is to have a heart starter fitted after he suffered a cardiac arrest during a Euro 2020 opener between Denmark and Finland.

This was revealed by the Danish national football association this Thursday.

The 29-year-old collapsed during the first half of the game and was rescued, thanks to the timely intervention of medics who ran from the touchlines and his teammates who prevented cameras and the press from coming close to him.

A heart starter is a cardiac device that is designed to correct the rhythm of the heart if it notices a potentially dangerous pattern by issuing a number of small or larger electric shocks.

According to the Denmark team doctor, Christian has accepted the solution and the plan has moreover been confirmed by specialists nationally and internationally who all recommend the same treatment.

It is not year clear if the No. 10 shirts will ever be able to play again, though Cardiologists have said there is a possibility he may never.

Denmark will face Belgium this Thursday night in their first game since Eriksen’s collapse. Belgium players have decided to pay tribute to the player in a special way. They will kick the ball out of play in the tenth minute and both teams will pause play and mark the moment.

Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand has said he expects Christian to be able to hear the tribute from his hospital bed, and that the midfielder will probably be watching on TV in his Denmark shirt.

“I think he’ll be in his (Denmark) shirt and watch the game,” Hjulmand said.
